    Some considerations:

    * Coastal shipping not only competes with international shipping, but with rail – and that rail link across Cook Strait is a critical part of our freight services; and which, by definition, competes with coastal services as well. So also was the roll-on-roll-off coastal traffics, like (back in the day) Pacifica. Historically that didn’t have any international carriers’ involvement.

    * The Government will still have to look at rationalising the port industry, especially in the South Island, but has avoided doing so out of local political considerations.
